Raja Ravi Varma (1848-1906) created his oleographs so that the images of his paintings would be seen by as many people as possible. Ravi Varma had a printing press in Malavali, near Lonavala where his oleographs were made. This is before the time when off-set printing was introduced. The oleograph sheet picked up different colors from 17 to 18 lithograph stones, through a resist method of catching the colors. This was the way the oleographs were made. They were also called Chroma lithographs.

Utterly charming and unique, these oleographs can add grace to the walls of your home or make meaningful presents for loved ones.

Ravi Varma presented his goddesses in a manner to convey their pan – national identity at a time when foreign rule was being questioned in India.

Saraswati, the Goddess of Wisdom, was shown playing the Veena, symbolizing the creative arts and science - the epitome of Knowledge. She was usually depicted in a white sari, symbolizing Purity and clarity of thought.

Though small in size, this oleograph holds its own beautifully. Stunning decorative work, a beautiful face, Ravi Varma’s signature and an advertisement as well! 

Size: 11” x 15”
